Summary

The Seven Competences of the Sustainable Professional shows how every professional can contribute to sustainable development. Through real-life stories told by a range of professionals, each illustrating a sustainability competence, this book provides a practical guide to help professionals realize their sustainability potential. Together, these competences form an accessible framework that is explained in practical terms. Readers are able to check their own sustainability competence level and make plans for personal development at each stage of the book.

There are dozens of books explaining how companies and organizations should work decently, dealing with topics like corporate social responsibility (CSR), sustainable entrepreneurship, and corporate governance. There is an equally large number of books that describe how individuals should behave in their private lives, for instance, by buying healthy food, using energy-saving equipment, showering with less water, and switching off lights in empty rooms. However, this is the first book to provide individual professionals with a clear framework to enable them to act in a sustainable way in their workplace, be they the CEO, CFO, manager, or office worker.
